Songs and Pro-D Tomorrow

This week we learned two songs:

“C’est l’automne” to the tune of Frère Jaques

(There is no video for this song, so take some time to look at it in your child’s songbook.  You may even spot a few words of the week.)


“Combien de jours” by Matt Maxwell

(To see the video for this song, you must go to the blog as it does not show up in the email.)


Tomorrow is a Pro-D Day so there is no school for students.  Enjoy the weekend and see you all on Monday.  Bon weekend!

Meet the Teacher Tomorrow

Bonjour parents,

This is a reminder that tomorrow is Meet the Teacher!

Please join us in the classroom anytime from 5:00 – 5:30pm.

  • Your child will have the opportunity to give you a tour of the classroom.
  • You will be able to look at various materials and activity centers that will be on display.
  • You will be receiving a “Parent Information Package” with suggestions on how to support you child at home.

We are looking forward to meeting all of you!  Please keep in mind that tomorrow will only be a quick introduction.  Parent-Teacher conferences will be in October – we will be able to discuss your child’s progress then.

From 5:30-6:30, the entire school will meet in the cafeteria for a light dinner and to meet other members of our community!

30 Questions to Ask Your Kid Instead of “How Was Your Day?”

I came across an interesting article and thought I would share it with all of you!

Hopefully you will be able to get your child to tell you more about what we do at school!

Madame Lexy 🙂
